West Bound And Up (Larry W. Jones 09/14/2007) (song#4955)

West bound and up
Sundown in a diesel truck
I’m on a black top road called the Cheyenne run
Truckin’ through ice and snow
I got a long way to go
West bound and up
This ol’ Texas Lone Ranger won’t be outdone

Though I ain’t gonna get no medal
Won’t be hearin’ no moanin’
You can bet my cowboy boot’s on the pedal
Big rodeo up in Wyomin’
Gotta get ’em steers from Fort Worth by mornin’
This ol’ Texas Lone Ranger is Cheyenne bound

West bound and up
Sundown in a diesel truck
I’m on a black top road called the Cheyenne run
Truckin’ through ice and snow
I got a long way to go
West bound and up
This ol’ Texas Lone Ranger won’t be outdone

– instrumental –

Ol’ Smokey Bear’s somewhere up ahead
And my right boot’s filled with lead
Hope I don’t scare this big load of steers to death
Gotta keep lookin’ cause he’s bookin’
Just keep this big ol’ diesel cookin’
It’s a big freeway just like the sign post said

West bound and up
Sundown in a diesel truck
I’m on a black top road called the Cheyenne run
Truckin’ through ice and snow
I got a long way to go
West bound and up
This ol’ Texas Lone Ranger won’t be outdone

West bound and up
Sundown in a diesel truck
I’m on a black top road called the Cheyenne run
